  • today, I'm going to be telling you how to pronounce the most common job titles.

  • It's very important to be able to introduce yourself and say Maybe what your job is to someone.

  • Maybe you have problems pronouncing the title off your job or somebody else's job.

  • This is the video that's going to help you today.

  • All right, you look This is Elliot from E.

  • T.

  • J English.

  • And like I said, we're going to be focusing on just singular words today.

  • Maybe some of them will be two words, but we're going to learn how to pronounce them so that you can talk about job titles without feeling worried about how you're pronouncing it.

  • These are actually based on the most common comments that I received on my YouTube channel.

  • Lots of people tell me what their job is.

  • I've created a list of the most common titles that I've seen in the comments.

  • Now, this is just going to be the basics.

  • If you really need the detailed way of pronouncing all of these sounds, the vowels, the continents, the stress than what you're going to need to do is join my pronunciation course.

  • The link is in description box below.

  • Anyway, let's start with the first job.

  • Now.

  • This is probably the most common job that I see written in the comments section below loads of you seem to be engineers.

  • Let's talk about how we pronounce this.

  • We start with a nice s sound.

  • It's very important to get that very first vowel nice and clear engine.

  • Let's just start with that word engine because once we get that right, all we have to do is finish with something we call a diff Thel.

  • A diff thong is a combination of two vowels, which creates one vowel sound on At the end of this word, it's e er ear, ear like these.

  • The things I hear with my ears.

  • So I'm an engineer, so practice going from a big smile into that very relaxed sua sound at the end Engineer next.

  • One that I see very often in the comments section is a Nakao mountain tent, a accountant.

  • So we start with the Schwab sound.

  • Uh, lots of people think that we start with a we say accountant, however, in British English, when we have a vowel, which is not stressed in a word, the stress in this word is on cow accountants.

  • Right?

  • So because this first vow is not stressed on, usually when it's the letter A.

  • It will be changed into a Schwab sound, just like when we say about instead of about so it would be a accountant accountant.

  • Now, with that end in the middle account, you need to kind of just get your tongue on the top of your mouth.

  • Accountant, accountant.

  • So, for example, I'm an accountant.

  • Try and finish with the tea, but you don't have two.

  • Lots of British people will drop that t at the end of their words.

  • And they would say I am an accountant, right?

  • So we're not.

  • We're kind of stopping the t in our throat at the end of that word, a bit like when we say ah lot instead of a lot.

  • Okay, so you could say accountant, but I usually recommend pronouncing that t at the end just to make it nice and clear.

  • Another very common one.

  • Ah, lawyer oy, oy.

  • Okay, so we have a really nice sound in their lawyer lawyer.

  • We're finishing with Schwab's sound because it finishes with E.

  • R.

  • Words which finished with the ER sound as an American would pronounce we will pronounce with a Loy.

  • Watch my mouth lawyer.

  • Okay, It's quite a nice word that American would call this on attorney.

  • But we don't say that.

  • We say lawyer And of course, this is my job.

  • Lots of other people's jobs.

  • Lots of people that watch My videos are teachers t Church.

  • So we do this nice A bit like T shirt, T chair teacher, the Stress T teacher.

  • So remember, when we stress a syllable win a word, our tone will go up.

  • Maybe it will sound a little bit longer on the unstrapped syllable will be nice and relaxed.

  • Teacher, I'm a teacher.

  • If you do a lot of translating, you could be a translator.

  • Trans later lay a.

  • So, of course again, lots of these job titles have def thongs in them.

  • These double vowel sounds that we have a So watch my mouth e a a translator.

  • So we're starting with an A finishing with an e translator.

  • I know it finishes with O.

  • R.

  • But that's still on er sound in American English.

  • So we will pronounce it with a Schwab and, uh so It's not just for E.

  • R.

  • It's also for O.

  • R.

  • For example, my next one, Dr Dr So this one's quite difficult because we have a constant cluster in the middle.

  • We have to do it.

  • We have to do it, Get it?

  • So I like to imagine the mouth like a machine.

  • Now imagine that you're pulling something and it's making something work.

  • When you create that sound, you should imagine that it releases almost like you're spitting so good, Dr Dr.

  • Now you can start by really stressing that constant cluster, but eventually you need to start relaxing it.

  • Dr.

  • Dr Andi, of course, Finish with a I'm a doctor.

  • This one has a very difficult vowel sound which lots of people hate.

  • It's the earth sound.

  • To create this sound, we open the mouth quite relaxed, very similar toe how the mouth is when we create the Schwab sound up.

  • But we need to make it longer.

  • The tongue needs to be kind of in the middle off the mouth on.

  • Imagine, like I've told you before in one of my videos.

  • Imagine you can smell something really bad.

  • Uhh!

  • Right.

  • Nurse, nurse and finally lots of people in the comments section tell me that they work as a secretary.

  • Now, an American would pronounce this with an extra syllable in there.

  • We actually relax.

  • This word a lot in British English, sec tree Secretary Ra Ra.

  • That's that sound in the middle of Secretary.

  • So I worked as a secretary.

  • So that's your lot for today.

  • I hope you enjoyed the video.
